An existence - Arthur lives in a rented room; he manages to pay bills (just); he has no family, he can't afford the things in life that make it worthwhile, despite the sunny image portrayed on TV & social media.


An existence

I haven't any time left, I'm too tired from my day
Routine, boring existence, I can barely pay my way
I'm stripped of all ambition, my hope gone down a hole
They say this is democracy, but we never have control

It's an existence, & here I'll stay

we're all left here like cattle, no ambition fight or voice
so many scared to speak out they're so used to have no choice
but who would do the menial jobs that make the country flow?
When it comes to fairness the management don't know

I can only dream of my own home
no hope & nothing left to show

No further education, not a chance to risk the debt
scores of people applying for a job just one can get
so here I am in a menial job & this is where I'll stay
I can't afford an escape, nothing better anyway

It's an existence, & here I'll stay
